...Moderate to locally strong east to southeast winds with moderate RH
recoveries Tuesday morning on upper slopes and ridges...

.DISCUSSION...
East to southeast winds will be gusty Tuesday morning, though vertical
mixing is expected to be limited to just above ridge top level due
to a fairly strong subsidence inversion. Winds will ease Tuesday
afternoon under an unusually warm and dry air mass. A weak cold front on
Wednesday is likely to lower temperatures and raise RHs some
Wednesday and Thursday, but east winds again Wednesday night into
Thursday morning will result in a warm and dry weekend.
